Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

A true backpackers hostel owned & operated by an Aussie and a crazy Vietnamese guy so I threw on my cape and created a hostel like no other and you know we have got it right! Why only 5 bucks you ask? 'Looks so good, there must a catch. Is there hidden costs? ' Nope! are a backpacker right? You are on a budget right? So we cater the price to your needs!

Once you are here ... You simply will not want to leave!

We have got you covered in style with a cheapest bar, very modern, western style Hostel. It opened in November 2010 and provides you with comfort and luxury right in the heart of the Old Quarter of Hanoi.

We offering both dorm and private rooms all including En-Suite shower and toilet facilities (Hot and Cold water), Air Conditioning, Personal Lockers, Free WiFi and a Balcony to view the city go by, our price includes breakfast, FREE BEER, internet, Wifi, all day tea, linen, towel, tax and helpful staff with friendly and best advice.

The best things about central backpackers are the crazy travellers, super friendly staff, comfy beds, free internet, Breakfast, good advice and most of all Free Beer!!!!!

Air conditioned, clean rooms, hot showers and did I mention free Beer.

- Tour: Do the Halong bay and Sapa trips with us, we guarantee you will get the BEST time and the BEST one with the cheapest price! And also we are the 2nd organizer HALONG bay trip for guest booking only through the Central Backpackers hostel only. And it is the 2nd tour in Hanoi that stays on a private island in the Cat Ba National Park where you can find the Bungalows, PARTY, Floating bar on the Summer and Camp-Fire on the Winter ( with FREE Alcohol with the House Music, pool table...). Just Here you can get it and heaps more!

WARNING!!! If you're arriving at Hanoi International Airport, we highly recommend booking your airport pick up through us. There have been numerous reports of taxi drivers taking customers to another hostel that pays them commission, claiming your hostel is full, has moved location, or has been knocked down by an act of God. The best way to guarantee a hassle-free transfer is to book through us for $15.

We look forward to meeting you and remember Happy Hour starts at 8PM!!!

Our reception is open 24 hours.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very central and convenient location for Hanoi old quarter, extremely helpful and friendly staff who organised our Halong Bay tour, sleeper bus to Hue and even sorted out our visas for Laos (which only took two working days!). Dorms were clean and cool and showers and toilet were fine if a little cramped (tiny corridor to reach them).

All in all a very good stay
